Coffee????????????

Fess up guys/girls who needs it to get started in the morning???






I didn't for a while but I get up at 4:30am. There were a couple of times I needed a little boost so I stopped at D&D on the way to work. Now I gotta get a large cream and sugar every morning. The girls at D&D have my coffe ready for me when I walk in the door.

I hate "coffee breath"... but I love the occasional iced Dunkin' Donuts coffee, loaded with cream!

When I need a caffeine jolt, I head for the Diet Code Red!

I love coffee, I must have it, I probably drink 4-6 cups daily. I have a personal account set up at Intelligentsia Coffee Roasters so that I can get high quality coffee at work. It's last last drug I do and I'm not giving it up.

If you think I'm ugly now, you should see me without coffee I usually drink 12 to 15 cups a day, I usually have 8 to 10 by 9am, I get up to walk the dog at 4:45 am.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

But true!!!!

Case in point: when I telecommute on Tuesdays I have an extra cup of coffee. Sometime after my 10 AM teleconference, I'm on the "porcelin deleted items folder". Now if I can only find a way to account for it on our time entry system....

Then again, I could bring my laptop with me and go through my emails. I'll need an extra long cable for connectivity purposes. Good way to multitask.....

Does anyone here have DSL hookups in their bathrooms????

15 cups a day is going to be a problem from both ends I'm sure.

After being almost a pot a day man for over 20 years I quit about 8 months ago. The first month was rough! Now I'll have a cup every now and then just for the taste. Maybe one every other week.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

Since I don't drink coffee, whatever is in my fridge or water is what I drink in the morning. Mostly it's just water.

I don't need anything to 'get me up' in the morning except my alarm. I hate waking up early though.
